Online Resources

  • Primo: - Search all of the Library's resources, including ebooks, articles, streaming videos, etc.
  • Streaming Videos:  - Information about accessing streaming videos through Swank, Kanopy, and Academic Video Online (AVON).
  • Databases: - Access individual databases for subject-specific or format-specific resources. 
  • Research Guides: - Subject-specific guides to help with your research including many online resources.
  • Interlibrary Loan: - If you can't find the resources you are looking for, you can request via Interlibrary Loan and we will do our best to find the item you need in a format that works for you. Interlibrary loan is available to current students, faculty, and staff only. New requests for physical books will be stored in our system, but at this time most likely they will not be filled. Requests for electronic journal articles will be processed, but there may be long delays. This is rapidly changing as the nation’s libraries adjust, we will post updates here as we know more.

  • All due dates for checked out items will be extended through the end of the semester and the the dropbox is always available to drop off items.
  • Renew Books Online - If you have problems renewing any items, let us know:
  • Returning Materials: You can drop off items at the dropbox located outside of the sliding doors near the Tower parking lot. Any overdue fees accrued while the campus or Library is closed will be waived.
